This Four-Layer Hummingbird Cake is extremely moist and extremely delicious. This Southern hummingbird cake is flavored with bananas, pineapple, cinnamon, and pecans. This cake takes a bit of effort to decorate, but it is very much worth the effort. The entire cake is frosted with a sweet and decadent cream cheese icing. If you don't like things overly sweet, you can easily adjust the icing to be less sweet. Once the cake has been frosted, you can decorate the entire thing with chopped pecans for a beautiful presentation. Enjoy a thick slice of this classic Southern recipe.
